Arroyo et al v.

Examination of the above-entitled civil actions reveals that these actions are related within the meaning of Local Rule 123(a) (E.D. Cal. 1997). 1 Defendant. ___________________________/ Defendants. ___________________________/ STATE FARM MUTUAL AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE COMPANY, No. 2:10-cv-01600-JAM-JFM v. UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, et al., MARTHA ARROYO, et al., Plaintiffs, RELATED CASE ORDER No. 2:10-cv-01282-MCE-KJM UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA Dockets.Justia.com 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 The actions involve many of the same defendants and are based on the same or similar claims, the same property transaction or event, similar questions of fact and the same questions of law, and would therefore entail a substantial duplication of labor if heard by different judges. Accordingly, the assignment of the matters to the same judge is likely to effect a substantial savings of judicial effort and is also likely to be convenient for the parties. The parties should be aware that relating the cases under Local Rule 123 merely has the result that both actions are assigned to the same judge; no consolidation of the action is effected. Under the regular practice of this court, related cases are generally assigned to the district judge and magistrate judge to whom the first filed action was assigned. IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the action denominated 2:10-cv01600-JAM-JFM, State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company v. United States of America is reassigned to Judge Morrison C. England, Jr. and Kimberly J. Mueller for all further proceedings, and any dates currently set in this reassigned case only is hereby VACATED.
